We will be deploying server version 1.19.2 to the Second Life Grid this week. We have found and fixed the problem that caused us to halt last week’s deploy (described here) and revert to 1.19.1.
As we have been doing, this week’s server deploy will be done via a three-stage rolling restart. At some point this week during the deploy windows given below, each region will be down for 5-10 minutes as the host on which it is running is updated with the new 1.19.2 code.
The schedule is planned as follows:
- Tuesday evening, 8:00PM-9:00PM PDT : we will deploy the new server code to ~500 regions.
- Wednesday morning, 7:00AM-9:00AM PDT : we will deploy the new server code to an additional ~1500 regions.
- Thursday evening, 6:00PM-11:00PM PDT : we will deploy the new server code to all remaining regions running the main Second Life Server.
Regions running the Havok4 Beta Server will not be affected by this deploy.
[Update 2008/03/25 10:15] The deploy to ~1500 regions will occur Wednesday morning rather than Wednesday evening, as originally announced. The schedule above has been updated.
[Update 2008/03/25 20:35] The deploy to 510 regions is done. The version being deployed is 220.127.116.11236.
[Update 2008/03/26 10:24] The deploy to an additional 1133 regions has completed. There are now 1642 regions on version 18.104.22.168236.
[Update 2008/03/26 11:20] Here is the list of regions which have been upgraded to Second Life Server 1.19.2. You can determine which version is running on the current region by looking at Help:About Second Life.
[Update 2008/03/28 00:43] The full rolling restart of Second Life is complete. This restart is upgrading the grid from server version 22.214.171.124992 to version 126.96.36.199236.
